Man arrested after shots fired in Manassas, car wreck in Haymarket

Warren Leon Corum, 38

A man suspected of firing a gun in the City of Manassas eventually wrecked his vehicle in Haymarket and was taken into custody after fleeing on foot Wednesday, according to Prince William police.

Officers were back at the scene Thursday morning to search for evidence in the case, police spokesperson Sgt. Jonathan Perok said.

Warren Leon Corum, 38, of the 2100 block of Mountain Road in Haymarket, faces several charges in both jurisdictions and is being held without bond.

Corum reportedly opened fire during an argument with a woman on the 9200 block of Niki Place around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Senior Officer Charles Sharp, a Manassas police spokesperson. The 46-year-old victim was not injured during the shooting.

Corum and his vehicle were located by Prince William police at Merchants View Square around 5:19 p.m., Perok said.

Corum allegedly fled in his vehicle onto James Madison Highway, striking two vehicles and a mailbox. His car was eventually disabled and he fled on foot, but a police dog found him.
